Yeah. Nothing to See Here.

Hello.
Been working up to sharing this one *vom*. I was asked to make a card for a wee girl daft about flamingos.  Flamingos are a most unfortunate colour.  Here it is in all it's hideousness.  Sorry.

Get Well

Hello.

Today's card is one I made for a friend to give her very brave wee niece.  Wasn't sure what to do so I used some cute animals and a big LOTV sentiment!

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This time our theme is Paper Piecing.  I enjoy a bit of paper piecing and I had fully intended to do a card with a digi image and a stamped image but time has just run away this week and I haven't managed.  Maybe later.

This is Cass' birthday card, she likes a Tomte so this cupcake one from KLM designs was perfect.

An Elephant Never Forgets.... to blog things.....

Hello.

Ages ago I took part in a Dies to Die For card swap and this is the card I made for it.  Cass gave me this die for my birthday (from DTDF!) and these wee MFT elephants were absolutely perfect to fit in the spaces.

Splish Splash

Hello.

What a luxurious bath this would be, not for me though, I hate baths! Takes far too long to run, and then I get bored cos I get too hot to read a book! Give me a shower any day of the week.

Silver Tree

Hello.

It was our friends' wedding anniversary the other day and this is the card I made for their special day.  I'd see lots of tree gift ideas on Pinterest and I suddenly remembered I had this fab Taylored Expressions tree die - I cut the wee bird house off though and added a tiny silver Memory Box heart instead.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This time our theme is Doodling.  This is really not one of my favourite themes.  I'm rubbish at doodling but when I was making a card for something else I discovered that the wonderful Vera Lane actually had a Doodle Border digi set so here you go. My doodling card.

Cancelled Birthday

Hello.

How many celebrations have been cancelled this year? I don't know about you but I haven't used my age this year so I'm not adding it on.

This is a card I made for someone who had a birthday during lockdown - can't remember who it was for but it was before June as I used a similar idea on a Father's Day card (I really must get round to sharing those too!!)

Hopping Mad

Hello.

I think this bunny may have hopped the whole way to his recipient as it took so long to get there.  I made this for my lovely friend Wends who had her birthday at the end of March.  Unfortunately the world was in lockdown and it took forever for it to get there! He has arrived now though!

Making a Splash

Hello.

Wouldn't this have been useful last week? Not this week though, it's raining!

I've just gone for a fairly simple layout - found some water like digi paper and thought the image would be perfect sitting in the middle.

Sweet Stampin' Challenge

Morning.

It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin'.

This time our theme is inspired by a Book/Song/Film.  My card was inspired by a card, which had been inspired by a musical so I took that theme and I ran with it! This is a tribute to the musical Six, inspired by the opening song Ex-Wives.
